The Ascot Branch Library 30/72, is # 30 in the LAPL system. It is in South Los Angeles just east of the 110 freeway. It has a great children’s section with a fun bench to sit on. . . and lots of tables and chairs for kids and caregivers. AND there is neon art up on the walls!
Riley picked out a bunch of books, but wasn’t in the mood to spend lots of time browsing that day. She’s also become averse to having her photo taken, so I got some shots of her feet and hands when reading our books. . . I guess these changes come with almost turning 2 years old!
We got Thank You, World by Alice B. McGinty and illustrated by Wendy Anderson Halperin.
We took home Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Caldecott Medal winner Jerry Pinkney.
We found It’s a Small World with words and music by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman and illustrations by Joey Chou (it includes a CD).
We also got The Caldecott Medal winner Black and White by David Macaulay.
We grabbed one of Riley’s favorite board books, Duck & Goose, Goose Needs a Hug by Tad Hills.
The last one we brought home was That Pesky Rat by Lauren Child.
It’s March – Women’s History Month, so check out some Strong Female Protagonists: Women in Comics, at any time!
Remember, you can visit your local library online as well. . . and it’s not just books – you can watch movies and documentaries on Kanopy or learn how to code with lynda.com (among many, many other resources available thanks to your library card, such as newspapers and language learning)!
One last reminder: items checked out from any Los Angeles Public Library may be returned to any of its 72 branches or to the Central Library. We return our materials to the next branch we visit! Thanks, LAPL, for making things so easy.
